FAQs

What does Infratil use Bond funding for?

Infratil has issued twelve series of Bonds (four have been repaid) and there have been different factors behind each. The first issue in 1999 was of approximately $66 million and was used to purchase an interest in Wellington International Airport. Other issues have similarly been invested in assets Infratil has acquired.

Do Infratil Infrastructure Bonds have voting rights?

Not usually. In certain extraordinary situations the holders of each class of Bonds may vote on matters that effect them.

What are my rights as an Infratil Bondholder?

The Bondholders' rights are set out in the Investment Statement. However as there are technicalities and complexities in some of the terminology contained in this description it is a good idea to talk with a professional adviser such as a broker or financial planner. The Bonds are not subordinated, but in certain situations Bondholders may not have priority claims to the assets owned by Infratil.

Who is the Trustee of the Infratil Infrastructure Bonds?

The Trustee is Trustees Executors Limited, Level 5 10 Customhouse Quay, Wellington. Telephone : 04 495 0999.

What is the Trustee's monitoring role with regards to Infratil compliance with Bond covenants and terms?

The terms of Infratil’s Bonds are set out in their individual prospectus and trust deeds (and summarised in the relevant Investment Statement). Each six months Infratil provides the Trustee with a certificate signed by directors confirming its position relative to the Bond covenants and with regards to general compliance with Bond terms. Infratil has always recorded conformity. Bondholders are welcome to contact the Trustee to confirm Infratil’s compliance.
